Damon, Carlton & A Polar Bear (and some art)
December 14, 2009 7:16 AM   Subscribe

At ComiCon 2009, comedian Paul Scheer stood up during the LOST panel and introduced Damon, Carlton, and a Polar Bear, a painting on black velvet of the two head writers/executive producers of LOST with a friendly polar bear, as well as a website that turned into an almost five month scavenger hunt/Fan appreciation event, where fans were given the opportunity to purchase 16 LOST-inspired posters commissioned by artists such as Daniel Danger, Dan McCarthy and Olly Moss. The hub page, which has been updating with clues since the beginning of August, has brought out fans from Tokyo, Argentina, Arizona, Honolulu, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Glasgow to events where the URL to purchase these prints (300 limited editions, less than 200 for sale) has been given out. LOSTArgs has been following the action since the beginning. Tomorrow, the LOST Underground Art project wraps up with the reveal of the 16th poster (rumored to be a Season 6 spoiler), at the Gallery 1988 art show in Los Angeles.

The posters are great, and it's a shame they are such limited editions.

I once went to a wedding he was at. I didn't talk to him. True story.

This marketing is very clever and tasteful, unlike anything i've seen on that ridiculous show.

PS: Kristin shot JR.

Wow. I'm sure it's possible to make a less interesting ARG, but I sure have a tough time imagining one that would still actually work.

The polar bear is a lost cause.

Potomac Avenue: PS: Kristin shot JR.

I think you'll find that Mulder shot JR at the Great Northern.

It was all a dream had during Laura Palmer's dying moment.

Also, thanks to the people who talked me into picking the show back up in the last Lost thread, almost done with season five! Definitely got better.

...but then Pam woke up and discovered that Bobby was dreaming in the shower about Tommy Westphall's snowglobe.

Gallery 1988 is literally around the corner from where I live. I will check this out.
